A day five years ago that changed the lives of thousands of Americans: the day that Hurricane Katrina made landfall. The water rushed in, the lights went out and for thousands of Gulf Coast residents nothing was ever the same.

CNN have released a video showing with pictures showing the days immediately after hurricane Katrina and now.

However U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: states ” I don’t have to tell you that there are still too many vacant and overgrown lots. There are still too many students attending classes in trailers. There are still too many people unable to find work. And there are still too many New Orleans folks who haven’t been able to come home.”
